Sclerotherapy Vein Removal at Vein Care Melbourne

Sclerotherapy treatment requires no anaesthetic, making it easy to recover from the surgery. A detergent solution is injected via micro-needle directly into the affected vein, causing the vein wall to collapse. The immune system responds to support the natural healing process as the collapsed vein is dissolved and absorbed.

The total treatment time is approximately 30 minutes. Depending on the severity, multiple treatments per site may be required for the best results. The same goes for microsclerotherapy, which is identical to traditional sclerotherapy except it’s specialised for tiny spider veins in the legs or face.

Benefits of Sclerotherapy Treatment for Varicose Veins

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy offers tremendous advantages for the treatment of small reticular and spider veins. It is very fast, easy on the patient, and typically provides visibly noticeable results in just a few weeks. It also leverages the body’s natural healing ability to remove unsightly veins and restore a youthful and appealing look, improving self-confidence and daily comfort, too.

Sclerotherapy Preparation

Before sclerotherapy treatment in Melbourne, it’s best to keep these few instructions and recommendations in mind:

  • Do not stop taking medications unless otherwise instructed.
  • Do not shave legs or apply moisturiser on the day of sclerotherapy treatment.
  • Wear loose pants and comfortable shoes to the appointment.
  • Vein treatment like sclerotherapy should be avoided if you plan to fly overseas in the next three weeks.
  • It’s best to stop smoking before sclerotherapy treatment.
  • Pre-medication isn’t necessary, but you can take two paracetamol tablets with food if you’re concerned about low pain tolerance.

Sclerotherapy Recovery Process

Not only is the sclerotherapy cost affordable, but the fast recovery time is also attractive. Adverse reactions are minimal, and any minor discomfort at the injection site can be minimised by local pressure. After sclerotherapy in Melbourne, patients can usually drive and/or return to work, although this should always be confirmed with the sclerotherapy vein removal specialist.
